Re: turbo boot issues

i was thinking about getting a set from riffraff. question about tightening the clamps on the plastic intercooler ends, can you crack them if you tighten too much?

Re: turbo boot issues

Dieselsite boots and hairspray should be the last set you ever need.
Solid top quailty units...though I would add the inserts to keep from Crushing intake plenums.

Early 99 f350 4x4 crew cab, auto. pmt2 pcm
2001 cup holder ,T500, MAX AC ASSIST AC mod, Diy Twin tymar, TS chip, Powerslots & Hawk pads, ford AIC, ..... with big fat want to list.

Re: turbo boot issues

Thanks southmike! The kind words are always appreciated... however, we do not support the use of hairspray whatsoever for our boots. It is a chemical and will cause a reaction that breaks down ANY boot material. The reason it "helps" the boots stick is because you've just glued your boot to your pipe. This is why some people are forced to use screwdrivers just to pull their boot off and then end up putting a hole through it.

What we offer instead to keep people from blowing their boots are our retaining rings. Here's the description of them from our website:

"You have heard about "O-rings" for your heads. Now use the same idea for holding on turbo cac hoses in high boost applications.

Simply slip the stainless wire over the tube until it sits in the negative bead groove. Slip the boot over the pipe and install your clamp over the area where the ring now rests. Gives the strength of welding a bead on your pipe without the need to take your pipes to a welder."
